The mall has been developed by the Salalah Commercial Center in partnership with the Ministry of Defence Pension Fund and Al Madina Real Estate Co.
Salalah Commercial Centre on Tuesday, at the Grand Millennium Muscat, hosted the signing ceremony of 27 new lease agreements for the new Salalah Grand Mall mixed-use commercial complex.
The Salalah Grand Mall is located in Adahariz, in the wilayat of Salalah. It covers an area of 51,000sq m, with a total floor area of over 91,000sq m. As an international shopping mall, it encompasses a huge hypermarket, a number of retail stores of the finest brands, food court, and a number of leading cafes.
Hamad Mohammed al Wahaibi, chairman of the board of directors of Salalah Commercial Centre said, “We are delighted to welcome the first batch of brands to our latest project in the governorate of Dhofar – the Salalah Grand Mall.”
Wahaibi said, ”The mall will be of great value to the wilayat of Salalah and, by extension, the Dhofar governorate as a whole. It will at the same time contribute towards strengthening basic services in the area and offering the citizens and residents an opportunity to shop for some of the world’s finest brands without having to travel to Muscat or outside Oman.”
He said, “We are constantly seeking good investment opportunities and pioneering projects. Especially those that benefit the fund’s shareholders and contribute towards enhancing the performance of the national economy through economic diversification.”
Engineer Khamis bin Mubark al Kiyumi, chairman of the board of directors of Al Madina Real Estate said, “Al Madina Real Estate aims to put its own mark on strategic real estate development projects in the sultanate. The Salalah Grand Mall was developed following the tremendous success of Muscat Grand Mall, which has encouraged us to repeat the experience for the people of the Dhofar governorate. The mall opens doors for foreign investments in the retail sector, and job opportunities for the people of the governorate, as well as enhances the attractiveness of the region from a tourism perspective.”
Salalah Grand Mall will include one of the most renowned retail outlets across the Gulf region, LuLu Hypermarket, along with the world famous Landmark Group, world-class entertainment centre Faby Land, luxury Arabian fragrance brand Amouage, as well as many other well-known global brands.
